Visit the legendary Wanda Metropolitano

The Wando Metropolitano is more generally known as Estadio La Peinete and its official name is Estadio de la Comunidad de Madrid. We’re not there yet, because the stadium has sold its naming rights and is therefore named Estadio Cívitas Metropolitano, but nobody actually refers to it like that. You might wonder: who used the stadium before it became the home base of Atlético Madrid? The most prominent goal of the construction of the Wanda Metropolitano was to draw the 1997 athletics World Cup to Madrid. This failed, but a match of the Supercopa was hosted at the stadium instead. Madrid wanted to draw the Olympic Games to the city in 2004 which is why the stadium’s big renovation started in that year. This failed, too, and they decided to let it become Atlético Madrid’s home base after.

Wanda Metropolitano’s history

Before Atlético Madrid played at the Wanda Metropolitano, they played at the Estadio Vicente Calderón and before that at the Metropolitano. They decided to call it the Wanda Metropolitano because Wanda became the stadium’s sponsor. The construction of the stadium costed 45 million euros. The renovation that took no less than 13 years costed 240 million euros. The stadium underwent a lot of changes, amongst them the increasing of the capacity from 20,000 to 67,703.
